understood, but that money that ben bernanke has been printing has been used to buy that debt and that's pushed treasury prices way up, bubble level. it is a bubble. what happens when it bursts? it will eventually. pretty soon people who lend it will say you can't pay it back and then you have killed the dollar. and the interest rates goes straight up and the economy goes straight down and ben will be unable to print out of trouble because it was printing that got us into the mess in the first place, i do not have a solution, only the conviction that we're indeed in another bubble and i don't know exactly how it will shake out. i don't know which investment will do well eventually, but i do know that this bubble will burst and when that happens, there will be a river of tears. so anyway, i've been to a lot of places. you know, i've helped a lot of people save a lot of money. but today...( sfx: loud noise of large metal object hitting the ground) things have been a little strange. (sfx: sound of piano smashing) roadrunner: meep meep. meep meep? (sfx: loud thud sound) what a strange plac

of monetary policy. ben bernanke has said that we have an unemployment rate that is way too high. he has proposed a way that he thinks would address that. do you think he is doing a good job and that this latest thing is in support of this economic growth and demand? >> they have better economic performance than this for monetary is criticized. there's a strong thought in this country that people on campaigns or associated with the executive branch do not comment on specific monetary actions of the fed. this is so important to the economic health of this country. i would say that nothing it has been helpful at all for the professional republicans. i think this is bad for the short term. >> i think there is a difference between politicizing in having an honest policy debate. i think the federal reserve's actions, and i have known that bernanke for a long time, i understand where he is coming from. i think that the fed's policy actions have exposed as to very little upside. i think it is absolutely almost patriotic to have a policy debate about whether it is a good idea to do what he is do
